"Art is the tree of life," according to poet William Blake. 
Andthe art and design departmental UW-Stout certainly 
enriches the cultural life of the university. The visitor 
walking through a door of the new Micheels Hall enters 
;i world thai reminds one thai while computers h:i\L" 
revolutionized our world, an relli'cts life. An refines life. 

The sounds of singing voices and instruments playing, 
the smell of paint and clay, entice the visitor into the 
domain of rich sights and sounds that flesh out what a 
university is all about. 

Though Stout was founded in 1891 and included an 
art component, it was not until 1 965 that the university 
introduced an actual an department. Then-president 
William J. "B ud" Micheels believed a strong art program 
is a valuable aspect of an academic atmosphere. 

Micheels graduated from Stout in 1 941 , and when he 
came back some 20 years later as president, he had 

gained life experiences which included an appreciation 
of cultural endeavors. 

"While my undergraduate training (at Stout) had 
been excellent in the technical subjects, I felt a lack in 
terms of the humanities," Micheels said in Art, a 
as he called it, that Stout should embrace and reflect and 
teach that which would give students a broader, richer 
education and appreciation for areas of life beyond the 
obvious necessities of basic education. 

However, the dream diil not come easily. Micheels 
battled bravely against what he called the "powers-that- 
bc" in Madison who believed that the slate could not 
afford the "fine arts frill." 

A great deal of jousting went on, to use his word, and 
finally culminated in a meeting in Madison. "After 
several introductory hours against all fine arts, things 

began to happen in Stout's favor," Micheels said. "In 
retrospect, I think I gave one of the best rebuttal argu- 
ments of my career," Micheels added. "Why can I say 
that? Because it worked!" 

John Furlong, assistant to the president at the time, 
was instrumental in helping to found the art program and 
served as acting chair. 

Micheels wanted an art department, and he wanted 
the best Stout could have as fast as possible, according 
to those who know. He discovered a flamboyant Italian 
in Duluih. Minn. .who was at that lime associate director 
of Duluth's Tweed Museum. 

"Bud Micheels made me an offerl couldn't refuse," 
Orazio Fumagalli said. And Fumagalli began to create 
an art department.

When President William J. "Bud" Micheels decided 
that Stout needed to enlarge the scope of its campus, that 
itneeded to broaden the objectives of what the university 
should do for students, he looked for a person who was 
dynamic and assertive and foresightful enough to be 
able to put together an entire art department. 

He found Orazio Fumagalli, whose very name sounds 
like he would be capable of the task. Fumagalli was 
associate director of the Tweed Museum in Duluth, 
Minn., at the time. 

"My job was to create an art department," Fumagalli 
said simply. So he did. And that art department is now 
the biggest undergraduate art program in the UWSystem, 
with artists/teachers who exhibit all over the country, as 
well as in Europe, and teach more than 650 students. 

"It was difficult at first," Fumagalli said candidly. "It 
was a hostile environment." Fumagalli believes that 
there was adversity on campus to the idea of an art 
department. "It was difficult," he said, "but the secret of 
success was that President Micheels and others were 
willing to defend and fight for art... for culture... for a 
broader education for Stout students." 

"I conceived of an art department made up of artists 
who teach,' Tumagalli said, "and who are philosophically 
diverse," so he proceeded to go out and search and find 
just that. 

Fumagalli also saw the importance of the artists/ 
teachers spending time doing their art. Hence, faculty 
members were promised studios in which to ply their art. 
"A studio is to an artist what a laboratory is to a scientist," 

Fumagalli said. And according to current faculty 
members, that attitude still persists. They are strongly 
encouraged to remain productive. In fact, promotions 
come more easily to those who perform their art, one 
faculty member said. 

Fumagalli believes that true artists live their art. It is 
for them a passion. And he should know. Fumagalli's 
father and his father's father, and his father's father's 
father were all artists. 

"I tried to get out of the family business," Fumagalli 
said, and he was planning to go into another field. "But 
I thought about it during the war (World War II), and I 
realized that art is a part of me, a part of who I am." 

And Fumagalli is certainly one individual who 
made art an integral part of what UW-Stout is. 

The art and design department adds color to the UW- 
Stout campus, not only the department as a whole, but 
also the individual artists who comprise it. One such 
artist/teacher is Douglas Cumming. 

Cumming and his wife, sculptor Nancy Blum, who 
also teaches at UW-Stout, have exhibited extensively in 
this country as well as in Europe. In fact, the two own a 
summer home in the south of France with West German 
artist Ebberhaid Eggers who was a guest artist at Stout 
from 1971 to 1972. 

Cumming came to Stout in 1967 when Orazio 
Fumagalli was putting the art department together. 
"President Bud Micheels wanted to bring a cultural 

influence to the campus," Cumming said, and "Fumagalli 
had the kind of dynamic personality to go out and get it 

Cumming said that the idea was to have a diverse 
department — "to take a stylistic position and then 
complement it with an opposite." He noted that that is 
still the underlying philosophy of the department. 

"The place is full of life," Cumming said. That's 
probably because art educators at Stout are themselves 
artists. "We have a self-imposed emphasis on practicing 
our art," Cumming said. The faculty is highly encouraged 
to be "studio active." In fact, according to Cumming, 

"it's ... difficult to get a promotion if you're not studio 

But Cumming, who is a tenured professor, is indeed 
studio active. "I'm up here all the time," he said. "I love 
it" That's part of why Cumming, who exhibits all over 
this country and has taught in England and lived in 
Germany and France, keeps coming back to UW-Stout. 
"There is a sense of professionalism here," Cumming 
said. And he appreciates that studio work is so highly 
encouraged. But also, he very much enjoys the students. 

"I love to see the light bulb go on above a student's 
head," he said. "That's as exciting as anything to me."

a growing reputation 

Since its inception, Stout's department of art and design 
has grown every year, and it is currently one of the 
largest undergraduate art programs in the UW System, 
largerthan UW-Madison's, with more than 650 students 
and 30 faculty. 

"Stout's art and design program is one of the largest 
in the Midwest," Paul DeLong, director of Stout's 
Bachelor ofFine Arts program, noted, "and it is nationally 
accredited, which takes some doing." In fact, DeLong 
said that Stout was singled out with other schools, such 
as the San Francisco Art Institute, the Art Institute of 

Boston and Yale University, in the spring 1 996 issue of 
Upper and Lower Case, the international journal of 
graphic design and digital media. Stout was listed as one 
of the top U.S. schools that have impressed potential 
employers. "It was an honor to be included in that kind 
of company," DeLong said. 

Ron Verdon, chair of the department of art and 
design, agrees. "We have witnessed many changes that 
have brought the department to be one of the largest and 
most dynamic art and design departments in the region," 
Verdon said. "The addition of design programs, enhanced 

facilities, and the diverse range of practicing artists and 
designers are living the "dream" that was hoped for 
when an art department was added at Stout," 

Chancellor Charles W. Sorensen said that the art and 
design department makes an extremely important 
contribution to Stout's image and strengthens the 
university's special mission. 

"We have in the department some of the finest 
faculty of any art program in the country," Sorensen 
said. "The presence of this quality program enhances the 
image of all our academic programs." 

"Stout's art and 
design program 
is one of the largest 
in the Midwest" 

Paul DeLong 

"They recognize 

and enjoy what 

we offer, and there is 

a strong rapport 

between two entities 

which might seem 

to be at different ends 

of a spectrum." 


"Life without industry is guilt; 

industry without art is brutality." 


William J. Micheels' vision for Stout was one "...where 
art and industry can thrive...." Little did he know that 30 
years later, the department of art and design and the 
College of Technology, Engineering and Management 
would share a building. 

"We have a good relationship," Gene Bloedom, 
Furlong Art Gallery director, said. "They recognize and 
enjoy what we offer, and there is a strong rapport 
between two entities which might seem to be at different 
ends of a spectrum." 

Bloedorn is also pleased with the new location of the 
gallery because it's on the way to the computer lab. "It' s 
beautifully situated," Bloedom said. "Students who may 
never have wandered over this far have discovered the 

Bloedom, who has been at UW-Stout for 25 years, 
believes the new gallery has established a greaterpresence 
on campus. "I'm afraid that sometimes there is a 
perception that Stout is a fairly narrow entity," he said. 
"People may say, 'Oh, you have a fine arts department 

He added, however, that UW-Stout does have a 
reputation in fine arts not only in this country but in 
Europe as well. "We've had an exchange program with 

schools in Europe for 15 years," he said. He noted also 
that museums in New York City and the Twin Cities 
send art to the gallery which, in addition to the display of 
fine art, is itself architecturally and aesthetically 

The openness and lightness and large glass windows 
are a welcoming invitation. "People just come to sit and 
enjoy it," Bloedom said. "It's like a refuge." 

Students, staff and faculty, as well as the public, are 
invited and encouraged to visit the gallery. A viable and 
dynamic art gallery with high quality work is "an 
essential part of a university campus," Bloedom said. "It 
is cultural enrichment from which everyone benefits." 

Art history students of Mary DeMaine say they enjoy the 
fact that they have an instructor who is "living the work." 
DeMaine conducts research in Emona, Slovenia, a site 
that was built literally overthe top of Ljubljana, Slovenia. 

She travels to Emona every summer to conduct 
research on the glass that was placed into Emonian 
graves, usually tableware such as cups, beakers and 
bowls. "No one has yet been able to ascertain the reason 
the vessels were included in with the burial items," 
DeMaine said. 

The glasswork included in the graves, for whatever 
reason, is definitely an art that reflects that time and 
culture, DeMaine believes, and she is anxious to share 
knowledge of that art form. She has presented in 
Amsterdam at the International Association for the 
History of Glass and conducted a three-day seminar on 
ancient glass production for archaeology students at the 
University of Ljubljana recently. 

"She is a teacher who is extremely involved in a very 
real way with her topic," Ron Verdon, art and design 
department chair, said of DeMaine. "To be able to 
genuinely appreciate art, knowledge of the history is 

DeMaine is also involved in a distance learning 
endeavor to further the understanding of art history. 
She, Sally Bowker and Jane Merks are creating a CD- 
ROM that will be used in UW-Stout classes and will be 
available via computer to students throughout the UW 
System. It will also be offered to technical colleges and 
vocational schools. 

"It's exciting to help students come to a new 
appreciation of art," DeMaine said. "And through distance 
education, even more people can be reached." 

Claudia Smith is the other art historian in the 
department. While Smith is extremely busy as president 
of the faculty senate, she also teaches several courses in 

the art and design department. Smith too has authored a 
CD-ROM and has participated in archaeological digs. 

"Everybody thinks excavating is really glamorous, 
but it's hard work," Smith said. "Occasionally people do 
make fantastic finds, but you're out there looking not for 
the fantastic find but rather for what the common objects 
can tell you." Smith and DeMaine say they have spent a 
lot of time "just going through dirt" 

Smith, like DeMaine, has made a CD-ROM. 
Smith's product is being sold commercially as a study 
and teaching tool. Three publishers contacted Smith 
here at UW-Stout to obtain publishing rights, and the 
CD-ROM was tested at Dartmouth and Cornell colleges. 

She too is excited about distance education, but she 
also enjoys working with UW-Stout students, as does 
DeMaine. "We attract some exceptional art students 
here," she said, "as good as they are anywhere." 

"It's exciting 
to help students 

come to a new 
appreciation of art."

Milton Glaser, of the Milton Glaser Design firm, says 
that "the passion and the gift" are essential qualities in 
aspiring graphic designers. If the fact that "the lights are 
on almost 24 hours a day" is any sign, the aspiring 
graphic designers at UW-Stout must be on the right

lecturer, said. "Not because they are forced to but 
because they want to. And the high placement ratings 
reflect that hard work." 

known graphic designers are in the Twin Cities and that 
UW-Stout is well recognized there. "Our students go 
into the field recognized and well prepared." 

According to DeHoff, students get six semesters of 
graphic design courses such as typography and logo 
design, and classes become increasingly complex. "When 
students start, they have a widely varied range of 
experience behind them," DeHoff said. "Some can't 
even put a name with a graphic designer, so we start at 
a very basic level. Students work on a portfolio from 
the time they start school." 

DeHoff agrees with art education professor Shari 
Klein that it's the portfolios that get students jobs. 
"They work on their portfolio from day one," he said, 
"and they start pulling it all together their senior year. 
That is their senior project." 

DeHoff said it's a great deal of work getting a 

portfolio together, "but is extremely beneficial for them. 
It's what gets them the job." By the time the student 
graduates, the portfolio includes 15 to 20 items along 
with their resume. 

He noted that employers can see that UW-Stout 
graduates have had a variety of classes. "We encourage 
that because in the field they will be working with 
people from a variety of art backgrounds." DeHoff said 
that UW-Stout ' s program is unusual in that students take 
classes in all the art concentrations whereas in many 
schools, these programs are segregated. 

"Our students graduate with a realistic sense of other 
art areas," DeHoff said. "Webelieve this produces well- 
rounded students who are attractive to employers."

The industrial design program at UW-Stout is the only 
industrial design program in the UW System and is 
recognized all over the country. Program graduates 
work in firms from San Francisco to Massachusetts. 

At Stout, they have the opportunity to work with such 
well-known companies as PUMA USA Rollerblade 
and Black & Decker. Industrial design students currently 
are collaborating with Black & Decker to design the drill 
of the year 2010. 

Black & Decker and the art and design department 
created the program to provide students an opportunity 
to apply industrial design theories and methods to "real 
workT'projects. Both Black & Decker and the university 
hope to gather new ideas to continue their exploration of 
future product possibilities. 

Using any combination of current or future 
technologies, students were encouraged to develop 
conceptual models of drills and other power tools based 
on innovation, ergonomics, manufacturability and 
consumer appeal. 

"We asked the students to imagine the types of power 
tools consumers will use at the year 2010, the beginning 
of Black & Decker' s second century of operation," said 
Martin Geirke, director of industrial design at Black & 
Decker and program coordinator. 

"Students were given broad guidelines to follow and 
encouraged to use their imaginations to develop concepts 
that will be appealing to consumers as well as that can be 
manufactured into useful tools," Challis Hodge, industrial 
design lecturer and program adviser at UW-Stout, said. 

"These projects are good for students in that they see 
ways in which the skills they are learning can be used 
professionally," Benjamin Pratt, industrial design 
instructor, said, adding that it also gives students the 
opportunity to work with well-known companies which 
is good on their resumes. 

Currently the industrial design department is 
exhibiting at3M. Companies come from all over to view 
the work. "3M has been very supportive of our work and 
our students. They donated the space for the exhibit," 
Pratt noted. 

"We try to connect with professionals as much as 
possible," Pratt said of the collaborations with industry. 
Todd Ellis, a program graduate, is'a designer at PUMA 
USA of Brockton, Mass. David Miller, director of 
research and design at PUMA, said that'Todd advocated 
for the selection of his alma mater because of its up and 

Todd Olson, another UW-Stout alumnus, is a senior 
industrial designer at Rollerblade in Minnetonka, Minn. 

"Stout students give a fresh, diverse look to Rollerblade 
products," Olson said, noting that the company 
management was impressed. 

Students in the industrial design concentration get 
the opportunity to take classes in all areas of art as they 
do in all the concentrations so they are familiar with art 
areas they may work with in the field. 

One project students particularly enjoyed, Pratt said, 
was designing packages in which to mail a raw egg 
without having it break.Packages were exposed to the 
ultimate challenge — the U.S. Postal System. Students 
worked hard on packages which would allow the egg to 
be mailed back to them without being scrambled inside 
or broken outside. 

"We have highly motivated students," Pratt said. 
"They put a lot of time into their projects, but they 
love it" 

"It is exciting for me to see what the students will go 
out and do," Pratt said. "We have such a variety of 
extremely talented students here." 

Apparently the public sector thinks so too. PUMA 
recruited another student, David Stender, after seeing 
his work in their most recent project with UW-Stout. 

"We try to 
connect with

Maureen Mitton 

"Our graduates are highly attractive to companies 
throughoutMinnesotaandWisconsin,"Maureen Mitton, 
art and design assistantprofessor, said of UW-Stout's art 
and design students who have an interior design 
concentration. "We have great placement," Mitton said. 

"Stout's art department is a dynamic department," 
Mitton said. In fact, that's why she left San Diego to 
teach at UW-Stout "I was so impressed with the art 
department here," Mitton said. "It's the only reason I 
would leave that climate." 

Mitton, who is in her fourth year of teaching at UW- 
Stout, taught at San Diego State University before 
coming here. She also spent several years designing 
restaurants in Calif ornia, everything from the kitchens to 
the dining rooms which gives broader definition to 
Mitton' s experience. 

Mitton recently finished a project that will appear in 

Better Homes and Gardens magazine in which she 
designed a million dollar home from top to bottom. She 
also recently presented a paper at an international 
conference in Denver for the International Design 
Educators Council. Mitton said that technology is 
dramatically transforming the workplace and that design 
is now more functional and aesthetic as well as flexible. 

Mitton noted the mobile workstations that are a new 
approach in office design. In fact, a 1995 UW-Stout 
graduate, Sarah Nigon, was a member of a design team 
that recently won the "best large office" award. Nigon is 
currently employed at M.S.R. Architects. 

Nigon was a member of The Wheeler Group, an 
architecture and design firm who designed an office for 
a Minneapolis-based company. Mitton noted that the 
award-winning office was featured in the January issue 
of Interior Design magazine. 

Nigon worked with other designers to reconfigure 
existing offices into a flexible and experimental "free- 
address" environment which aims to maximize creative 
output. Mitton said that's a good example of the kind of 
work many design students will do. "There are more 
than 100 interior design students at Stout," Mitton said, 
"and many of them will go into commercial design." 

"Stout's art department is well-known in the 
Midwest," Mitton said, "and this is a very good time for 
us. There is a lot of variety of talent in the department. 
It's exciting to be a part of the faculty here." 

Mitton added that the new building, Micheels Hall, 
is the link building that gives the art and design depart- 
ment a higher profile on campus, "to let students know 
that the arts should be a part of liberal arts education." 

Original art lines the wall of the office of UW-Stout 
associate art professor Sheri Klein — works by "great 
masters," including the children of Menomonie. 

The Saturday children's art program run by UW- 
Stout' s art and design department is a program they are 
proud of. "It has a dual purpose," Klein said, "to enrich 
the children and to give practical teaching experience to 
Stout's art education students. It has worked out very 

Kleinnoted also that UW-Stouthas the only National 
Art Education Association student chapter in the state, 
which was recently recognized by the Stout Student 
Association. UW-Stout's NAEA chapter is active both 
on campus and in the community with service, volunteer 
work and fund raising projects. 

UW-Stout's art education program is one of the 
largest undergraduate art education programs in the UW 
System, with about 90 students. 

"School districts from all over the state come to 
recruit art teachers from our department," Klein pointed 
out. Most recently the La Crosse school district hired 
several UW-Stout graduates. 

Klein said that 85 to 90 percent of UW-Stout art 
education graduates are placed in K-12 teaching posi- 
tions. Others may go into other art-related fields or 
pursue graduate study. "The feedback I've gotten from 
schools is that they are impressed that our graduates 
come to the classroom so well prepared." 

Klein, who received her Master of Fine Arts degree 
from the Art Institute of Chicago and is receiving her 
doctorate in art education this spring from the University 
of Indiana, has been at UW-Stout three years and is 
impressed with the art education program. 

"I think ourprogram is unique," she said. Klein said 
that as sophomores, students begin putting together 
"teaching portfolios" which include art work, lesson 

plans and resumes. "It helps their professional 
development as well as helps them find jobs," Klein 

"In their development here at Stout, we try hard to 
educate themfor leadership andresponsibility. We want 
students who are thinking ahead to what may be needed 
in the art education field in the future," she said."These 
are the art teachers of the next century. We are building 
for the future." 

"At Stout, art education students learn to be artists 
andteachers,"Klein said. "They come out of ourprogram 
well prepared to create art, discuss art and write about 
art, as well as teach art and advocate art. 

"As they prepare to teach art to young people, it is

UW-Stout reports placement rate 

Nearly 97 percent of UW-Stout's graduates from December 1994 and 
May and August 1995 were employed or continuing their education, 
according to the university's annual placement report. 

LaMont Meinen, director of UW-Stout's Placement and Co-op Ser- 
vices, said that 96.9 percent of graduates surveyed for this year's report 
were placed. 

"The Placement and Co-op Services Office was able to reach approxi- 
mately 94 percent of the 1,176 graduates," Meinen said. "The annual 
report is based on 1,101 graduates. Of those employed, 89 percent 
reported employment in. or related to, their major. Median salary for 
graduates was $24,000. compared to $23,500 last year." 

Twenty-one of the university's programs or concentrations reported 
100 percent placement. 

The report lists several factors in UW-Stout's continued high place- 
ment ratings: 

• UW-Stout provides career-oriented programs with a strong inte- 
gration of humanities course work for all majors. 

• Up-to-date curriculum ensures well-prepared graduates. Majors 
are responsive to environmental and societal needs. 

• During the 1 994-95 year, 54 1 students participated in the coopera- 
tive education program giving them invaluable hands-on experi- 
ence prior to graduation. Seventy-five percent of all graduates had 
some type of experiential learning. 

• Faculty, staff and administration are sincerely interested in the 
quality and future employability of their students and strive to make 
it an integral part of the education process. 

• During the 1994-95 school years, 250 companies recruited on 
campus for seniors, and 188 companies recruited for co-op stu- 

Grant expands hospitality and tourism program 

A grant of S289.765 from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation will take UW- 
Stout's hospitality and tourism program beyond the campus to virtually any 
part of the state. 

The grant provides funding to develop asynchronous learning experi- 
ences which give students access to education in any remote place at their 
convenience. Students willreceive theirinstruction by the internet, computers 
and other new delivery systems. 

"This is a major step in taking instruction beyond the campus to people 
who might not be able to obtain an education in the traditional university 
environment," Chancellor Charles W. Sorensen said in announcingthe grant 
"This is precisely the approach to education we must add to our traditional 
instructional methods, if we are to reach new audiences and serve the world 
of the 21st century." 

Richard Anderson, special assistant to the chancellor, said that the Sloan 
Foundation provides funding to about 15 universities nation wide for projects 
focusing on asynchronous learning. Anderson, who coordinated the grant, 
said that small businesses areplaymganintegralrolemmeprojea'splanning 
and development 

The idea for the program began several years ago when a group of Door 
County business operators approached Anderson about developing student 
co-op activities in their region. Door County often faces a lack of qualified 
employees for their tourism industry, and having hospitality and tourism 
students from UW-Stout fill this void would benefit both the students and the 

industry, Anderson said. But in order for students to participate in such 
extended co-ops. they would also need to continue some of their other studies, 
a role that would involve some form of distance education. The Sloan Grant 
will enable UW-Stout to offer hospitality and tourism courses, not only in 
Door County, but in virtually any part of the state, Anderson said. 
The grant will help finance several specific activities: 

• Release faculty to convert five courses to asynchronous learning 
network modes of instruction and to teach those courses. 

• Expand the training of faculty and staff in asynchronous education. 

• Developanddelivertwocertificateprogramsinhospitalityandtourisni. 

• Survey professionals in the industry to determine the need for profes- 
sional development through new delivery systems. 

• Evaluate outcomes and efficiencies of these new delivery systems. 
Sorensen said the grant represents a commitment of the university to 

develop new approaches to teaching and, at the same time, recognizes the 
national reputation of UW-Stout's hospitality and tourism program, which 
currently enrolls about 800 students. 

Project staff includes Jim Buergermeister, chair of the department of 
hospitality and tourism; Joseph Holland, a professor in the department

Niche celebrates 25 years in campus retail business 

The Niche, Stout's own retail store laboratory, is celebrating a quarter of 
a century of business this year. The store is operated by Stout fashion 
retailing students. 

TheNicheoriginatedin 1971 whenformerdeanJ.Anthony Samenfink 
and Marcia Metcalf, another faculty member since retired, planned the 
operation to allow fashion merchandising students to gain practical 
experience in running a store. 

"The Niche allows student in the fashion retailing practicum to obtain 
hands-on experience in retail operations," Kathleen Cochran, associate 
professor of apparel, textiles and design, said. "Students can apply theory 
and concepts to a realistic retail experience in all aspects of small 
businesses." In addition to working in various positions in the store, each 
student has the opportunity to go to merchandise marts and participate in 
purchasing store merchandise. 

Ty Ellis, who graduated in May with a degree in retail merchandising 

and management said, "The Niche has been a great experience for me 
because it has given me opportunities I would not have had otherwise." 
Ellis especially enjoyed traveling to the gift market and apparel market in 
Minneapolis. He has worked in his field during summers and has found 
what he has learned at The Niche to be "very practical information that 
could apply to a variety of businesses." 

Christy Carlton also graduated in May, with a B.S. degree in general 
business administration. "For the technical component of my major, I 
chose retail management," Carlton said. She is working at The Niche for 
her practicum. "I wanted to get experience in retail," she said. "I love 
working at The Niche. It's really helped me realize what retail manage- 
ment is like." 

In addition to allowing students to gain practical experience, The 
Niche serves the community and Stout students as well by offering unique 
items at reasonable prices. 

Change is the watchword 

This has been a very interesting and 
exciting year at UW-Stout. We have 
been through the painful process of 
adjusting to a S 1 .2 million base budget 
reduction, the first such reduction in the 
history of the UW System. After a 
thorough campus review, we made 
many changes, including a structural 
reorganization that reduced our four 
schools to three colleges. 

Change will continue to be the 
watchword for UW-Stout and the UW 
System. The Regents just finished an 
extensive study of issues for the 21st 
century and adopted them as policy at 
the May Board meeting. This policy 
paper focuses on the future; using 
technology wisely to deliver academic 
programs at remote sites, mainfcrining 
leadership in technology transfer, 
reducing time to degree for students, 
keeping tuition affordable, protecting 
quality, and joining K-12 and the 
technical colleges are all emphasized. 

We should be pleased that on most 
issues, UW-Stout is leading the other 
UW System schools in these efforts. 
We are making great strides in the use 
of technology for instruction. The 
Industrial Technology program has been 
authorized as an extended degree, and 
we will pilptjthe program this fall. The ; 
Sloan Fbundatibn has given us a second 
grant, and professors Joe Holland, Jim Buergermeister and 
Randy Upchurch will spend this year developing five courses 
and two certification programs on Lotus Notes for the 
Hospitality Industry. The Nakatani Center is seeing more 
traffic, including 24 teachers from K-12 districts who will 
spend a week this summer studying the application of 
technology to the classroom. 

Change is never easy. I have pledged to work on 
strengthening shared governance, improve internal 
communication and, generally, work more closely with the 
faculty as we develop and implement our agenda. I am 
confident that not only will the campus move forward in a 
positive way, but that we have all learned a great deal this year. 

I am proud of our rich heritage, and I am very confident of 
our future. We are, and remain, one of the most distinct and 
finest state universities in the country. With your strong 
support, we will continue our fine traditions. 

"We are,

Leadership for new colleges announced 

UW-Stout's new academic structure, approved recently by the Board of 
Regents, takes effect July 1. The change moves UW-Stout from four 
schools to three colleges. 

Provost George DePuy has announced several appointments for the 
leadership positions in the three new colleges. 

The School of Liberal Studies will become the College of Arts and 
Sciences. Gerane Dougherty will continue as dean; and John Hunt will 
continue as associate dean. 

Ed Biggerstaff, who was dean of the School of Education and Human 
Services, will serve as interim dean of the new College of Human 
Development Judy Herr and Mary Hopkins-Best will be interim associ- 
ate deans. A dean's search committee will be formed in the Spring 1997 
semester, and a search will take place during the 1997-98 academic year. 

Bruce Siebold, formerly dean of the School of Industry and Technol- 
ogy, will serve as dean of the new College of Technology, Engineering 
and Management. Peter Heimdahl and Howard Lee will be associate 

"We are very fortunate to have such talented academic adininistrators 
to serve UW-Stout during this time of transition to a new academic 
structure," DePuy said. 

Hall Named For Micheels 

The Board of Regents approved the naming of the new facility between 
Jarvis Hall and the Applied Arts Building as Micheels Hall in honor of 
William J. Micheels, fourth president {chancellor) of the university. 
Micheels was the chief executive officer herefrom 1961-72. He currently 
resides in Lake San Marcos, Calif. 

Plans call for a dedication Thursday, Sept 26, 1996. 

Stout Outlook ♦ 5 

Foundation Report 

Stout University Foundation 

The Stout University Foundation Board of Directors, at their recent board meeting, awarded 
$31,600 to underwrite six grants for 1996-97. Three grants are underwritten by the Hedberg 
Foundation. Anne Reuther, chair of the Grants Committee, indicated each of the proposals 
relates to the mission and goals of the university: 

Heciberg Foundation Grant: 

Pilot Project to Develop Distance Learning Resources Services 

Library Learning Center — Theresa Murasld, Principal $12 ,847.00 

The Library Learning Center project will develop a pilot program to support the information 

needs of individuals who are teaching and learning via distance education methods. The library 

will use the World Wide Web as the primary means of offering access to electronic information 

resources and course materials to those students studying at distant locations. 

Hedberg Foundation Grant: 

University Standards Font Acquisition for Special Projects 

William DeHoff, Proposer $1 ,453.00 

The art department will purchase the official university fonts and license 

25 computers in the graphic design computer laboratory, making the fonts 

permanently available to students to use for official university publications. 

The students in the graphic design courses are involved in many design 

assignments related to university publications and projects. DeHoff, a 

member of the art and design faculty, noted "In order to practice typography 

in a truly professional sense, students should have an opportunity to work with the full range of 

ligatures, small caps, swash characters, old style numerals and ornaments. This grant allows the 

department to purchase both the Complete Weiss and Minion type families." 

The Pueblo Potter Today: A Native American Artist's Approach to the Craft 
John Petri, Proposer $5211-00 

John Perri, art and design department, has invited an Indigenous American 
potter, Kathy Sanchez, from the historic Udefonsp Pueblo, New Mexico, to UW-. 
Stout for the purpose of demonstrating how herfamily makes the world-famous 
blackware pottery and to share her experiences and views of the American 
Indian woman. She will present a multifaceted workshop which will include 
stories of her culture and her art craft Her ancestors created multistoried 
structures, built a network of roads, and used reservoirs and irrigation systems 
200 years before the landing of Columbus. Sanchez is scheduled to visit the 
campus in the fall. 




Do More With Less ... Stress 

Mary Kay Sankey and Bill Siedlecld, Principals $4,151 

Recent employee studies indicate workers' elevated stress levels and 

limited stress management skills are negatively affecting the workplace. 

A team of UW-Stout personnel will assess the stress levels of UW-Stout 

employees and provide educational programs to assist employees to 

improve their stress management skills. A yearlong series of skill building 

programs will be scheduled for staff and students. The committee will also 

publish an inventory of stress management resources which will be available to the staff, students 

and the community. 

Hedberg Foundation Grant: 

Problem-Based Learning Curriculum Within the Dietetics Program 

Barbara Bayard, Proposer $6248.00 

The grant proposer, Barbara Bayard, explains: "The future of dietetic practice 

compels educators not only to impart knowledge and skills to students but also 

to allow an educational protocol to encourage the integration of knowledge and 

skills which foster critical thinking." Bayard will design a problem-based 

curriculum incorporating critical thinking skills and clinical reasoning patterns 

in the undergraduate program. The grant will also address the needs of trained 

dietitians who work side by side with physicians, nurses and other allied health 

professionals. No other university presently has a dietetic program which uses Ba y ard 

a comprehensive, structured problem-based learning format. The project will be completed by 

June 1997. 

Original Scenery of the Mabel Tainter Memorial Theater - 
Identifying, Cataloging and Digitizing 
Paul Stduffacher, Principal $1,690 

The Mabel Tainter was dedicated in 1 890 as a fully equipped, state-of-the- 
art theater. Although the Mabel Tainter has been restored, its remaining 
original scenery has not. Stauffacher will photograph and document the 
original scenery, digitize it and electronically "restore" the scenery. 
Subsequent images would be available for public viewing via hard copy 
at the Mabel Tainter or online by logging into the World Wide Web site. 


The Grants Committee and the Foundation Board congratulate those who were awarded grants this year and thank all of the 
faculty and staff members who submitted proposals. A special thanks to the Hedberg Foundation, and to the UW-Stout 
Research Promotions staff, Ted Knous and Susan Foxwell, who helped the faculty and staff with their respective written 
proposals and budgets. 

"Challenge for Excellence" 

Applied Mathematics campaign is under way 

Applied Mathematics Campaign Steering Committee: (/ to r) Colleen Hartmon '88; Mary Strause Dangler '87; 
Paul Hed '89; Matt Mais '91; Krista Baumann '90; and Mike Mundy '88. Not pictured are Melinda Albrecht '92; 
Eric Austvold '89; Duane Miller '81; and Sonja Welber '91. 

The applied mathematics steering committee met recently at the Louis Smith Tainter House on 
the UW-Stout campus to review plans to officially launch the campaign. As Eino Maki, 
applied mathematics faculty member, explained, "We have the opportunity to be an integral 
part of an effort to make UW-Stout the 'school of choice' in applied mathematics. Our track record 
has been great and our graduates excel in their respective positions. It is alumni, faculty, staff and 
students who have worked together to build the applied mathematics program's national reputation. 
Now we must work together to meet the challenges in applied mathematics for 1 996 and the future." 

The first applied mathematics courses were offered in 1967. At that time, only three computer 
courses were required. Today, each student completes a balanced course load in computer science, 
mathematics and statistics. The computer application areas have been enhanced each year the 
program has been in existence. Currently, 280 students are enrolled in the program and the use of 
computer laboratories is extensive. 

The steering committee has helped to identify department needs and has been personally involved 
in the alumni and friends solicitations. The campaign appeal has been mailed to all applied 
mathematics graduates, and a special phone solicitation is under way with the steering committee 
who will call graduates for their contributions. 

The campaign addresses three areas of need: a $50,000 endowed scholarship fund to be used for 
applied mathematics majors; $100,000 for a laboratory fund to create a RISC-based UNIX 
computing laboratory; and a $30,000 endowed professional faculty fund which will provide, funds 
for participation in seminars and colloquiums as they pursue the new technology as it relates to 
applied mathematics. 

Hess appointed first Steenbock chair 

Mary Abbott Hess has been 

appointed as the first Evelyn 

Carol Van Donk Steenbock 

Chair in the department of 

food science and nutrition at 

UW-Stout. Funds for the 

endowment were the result of 

a bequest from the estate of 

Evelyn Carol Van Donk Hess 

Steenbock. Hess' appointment will focus on 

nutrition education. 

As recipient of the Steenbock Chair, Hess 
will work cooperatively with food and nutrition 
faculty to initiate a Nutrition Education Center at 
the university. The center will provide 
undergraduate, graduate and continuing 
professional education experiences and nutrition 
service to the community. The health promotion 
activities will include nutrition assessment, 
education and counseling provided by a 
multidisciplinary health care team using aholistic, 
client-centered approach. Hess' role will include 
developing and implementing programs that will 
enhance the national stature of the university for 
its excellence in nutrition education. 

Hess is an expert at translating and 
communicating the science of nutrition into 
intelligible words and great food choices. A 
registered dietitian and fellow of the American 
Dietetic Association (ADA), Hess is president of 
Hess & Hunt Inc. - Nutrition Communications. 
Her firm has specialized for the past 16 years in 
providing consulting services to agencies, 
associations, businesses and the food service 
industry. Her emphasis on promoting health and 
well-being through the enjoyment of satisfying 

food offers a refreshing change from rigid rules 
and dietary dogma. "We can love food without 
carrying it around with us forever," Hess said. 
"And we can meet our health needs in different 
ways. The food we eat should nourish our bodies 
and souls." 

Hess was the 1990-91 president of the 66,000- 
member American Dietetic Association, the 
world's largest organization of food and nutrition 
professionals. In 1993, she received a coveted 
ADA medallion for lifetime achievement Early 
in 1 995 , she was chosen as a charter fellow of the 
American Dietetic Association. In October 1 995, 
she was elected as a member of the Corporation 
of the Culinary Institute of America. 

After completing an internship and master's 
degree in dietetics, Hess studied at LaVarenne 
Cooking School in Paris, and earned a Gold 
Medallion from the German Wine Academy. 
Forhercontributions to theprofession and service 
to the public, she received an honorary doctor of 
humane letters degree from Simmons College in 
1991. The National Association of Food 
Equipment Manufacturers awarded her an 
honorary doctorate in food service for her 
leadership in the food service industry. 

Her books include the "Healthy Gourmet 
Cookbook," nominated for a 1995 James Beard 
Award; "The Art of Cooking for the Diabetic," 
the first major cookbook with an explanation of 
the 1995 food exchange system (more than half 
a million copies sold); and the "Review of 
Dietetics" manual, an important resource for 
thousands of students, dietitians and educators. 

Hess' appointment began Feb. 1. 

6 ♦ Stout Outlook 

Stout University Foundation 

Jamison bequest enhances scholarship 

A 1915 Stout graduate has left a quarter million dollars of her estate to a 
university scholarship, Chancellor Charles W. Sorensen announced. 

Funds from a bequest by Lida Jamison, who died in Appleton in November 
1 994, will be added to an existing dietetics, foods and nutrition scholarship she 
initiated in 1982. The scholarship has provided annual awards of SI, 000 each 
to students in that major. 

After receiving her diploma from the Stout Institute, Jamison completed her 
dietetic degree at UW-Madison. Following graduation, she moved to Chicago 
and worked as a hospital dietitian. She returned to her hometown of Appleton, Jamison 
after she retired, to become involved in the many professional and cultural opportunities in the Fox 
River Valley. 

Patricia W. Reisinger, director of the Stout University Foundation, noted Jamison was "very 
proud of her degree from Stout and attributed her successes, both at Madison and in her 
professional life, to the dedicated faculty and the rich educational experiences she enjoyed at 

"Lida' s contribution is an important asset for attracting and developing students in the food and 
nutrition profession," said Esther Fahm, dean of UW-Stout's School of Human Environmental 
Sciences. "Our dietetics, food and nutrition programs are experiencing rapid enrollment growth 
and interest from prospective students throughout Wisconsin and nationally. Lida's scholarship 
will enhance the opportunity for many students to pursue their educational dreams and for our 
university to recognize their academic talents. We are privileged and honored by Lida's generosity 
and vision." 

Sorensen said that gifts to the Foundation have increased each year, with assets now totaling 
$9.6 million. 

John Hovelsrud Endowed Marketing Scholarship 

John Hovelsrud died in 1995. In memory of his successes in sales and 
marketing, his wife, Marjory, their children, family and friends have 
established a scholarship in his name. The first scholarship will be awarded 
this fall to a junior or senior majoring in marketing. 

John's career in sales began as a manufacturer's representative, and he 
progressed through many assignments to attain the title of vice president of 
marketing at several major firms. 

John designed the first formal sales training programs in the United 
States. He was also responsible for creating and implementing totalmarketing Hovelsrud 
programs for several companies. Having retired from the marketing field, John and Marjory 
retired to MaidenRock, Wis. Two years later he became a successful manufacturer's representative, 
started a marketing firm, and bought his own furniture company. 

John's sales and marketing career spanned 41 years. He was creative and resourceful, and 
he understood the importance of an education — especially as it related to sales-and marketing. 
He appreciated the marketing program available through UW-Stout, and was very proud of his 
children's educational experiences at UW-Stout. Marjory noted, "It's fitting for us to create the 
scholarship at UW-Stout. John" would have approved." 

Robert and Beverly Peterson Spinti Student Development Fund 

Two retired faculty members, who are also UW-Stout 
graduates, have established an endowed fund to assist 
undergraduate students enrolled in technical programs in 
the School of Industry and Technology and the School of 
HumanEnvironmental Sciences. The fundprovides financial 
assistance for students to attend national and international 
professional meetings or workshops to further their 
professional experiences. 

The Spintis recognize that the expenses associated with 
attending workshops or seminars limits the number of 
students who may be able to take advantage of them. Thus, 
with funds in this account, interested students will have the advantage of attending professional 
meetings held around the United States. 

The selection of students receiving the grants will be made by the deans or designees of the 
schools housing the technical programs. Brace Siebold, dean of the School of Industry and 
Technology, stated, "Such a fund will be invaluable. It provides the departments with funding 
to promote student involvement with professional campus organizations, and it allows students 
the chance to attend and network with many other professionals beyond the UW-Stout 
environment. Students who take advantage of such professional interaction will be far ahead of 
the game once they're in their respective careers."

Giving to UWStout with a 
Charitable Remainder Unitrust 

Commitments from alumni, friends, businesses, foundations and others help 
to support UW-Stout. Such generosity enables the institution to continue to 
provide resources and initiatives not funded by state support 

These gifts add an extra dimension and are critical to all academic 
programs at the university. Donors make a difference in the lives of everyone 
on campus. The following information on Charitable Remainder Unitrusts 
may help you accomplish your goal of donating funds to UW-Stout. 

Charitable Remainder Unitrust 

A Charitable Remainder Unitrust is a trust which returns income to a donor 
or other person for life or for a period of time not to exceed twenty years. The 
annual payments are based on a fixed percentage (not less than 5%) of the fair 
market value of the trust assets on the annual valuation date. Upon termination 
of the trust, the remaining assets are paid to the charity or charities as specified 
in the trust agreement. There are other variations available for the annual 
payment calculation. 

Tax Consequences 

The donor, or creator of the trust, receives an income tax deduction based on the expected term of the 
trust, payout rates, assumed earnings of the trust and the discount rates. Since the trust can sell 
appreciated assets tax free, many trusts are funded with appreciated securities or other assets. This 
allows income to be earned on the entire asset rather than the net available after the payment of capital 
gain taxes if this asset was sold outright There may be gift tax and Federal estate tax due if a life 
interest in the trust is given to someone other than the donor's spouse. 


Mrs. Doe is 65 and would like to make a significant contribution to UW-Stout. She is in the 28% tax 
bracket and, among other investments, has securities held long-term valued at $100,000. The basis 
on these securities is $20,000 and they pay annual dividends of 3%. 

Recently retired, she would like to increase current income. In this situation, a Charitable 
Remainder Unitrust would help Mrs. Doe with her charitable and financial goals. 


Assuming the trust assets were invested to produce an 8% annual return and the trust is in existence 
for 25 years and in the sell and reinvest option, the assets are also invested to produce an 8% annual 
return. Here is the comparison of benefits using the Federal discount rate for April 1996: 

Value of Asset 

Charitable Deduction 

Income Tax Savings (28%) 

Total Before-Tax Income after 25 years 

Benefit to Charity after 25 years 

As you can see, based on the earnings assumptions indicated above, both the 5% and the 7% 
unitrust will pay Mrs. Doe more income over her life than if she would sell these securities and reinvest 
the remaining assets herself. In addition, she would be meeting her charitable goal by providing a 
significant contribution to UW-Stout. 

This is not intended to render legal, accounting or other professional advice. If legal advice or other 
expert assistance is required, the services of a competent professional in the respective field should 
be sought. 

The Stout University Foundation will be happy to answer any of your planned giving questions. 
Please contact David Wiensch, Planned Giving Officer at 715/232-1 151. 

Foundation donates land to 
Menomonie public school system 

The Stout University Foundation donated 40 acres to the Menomonie Public School System in 
February for the building of a new middle school for the district The Real Estate Committee, chaired 
by Mark Kinney '75, worked with Dave Smette, superintendent of Menomonie Public School 
District, and Jim Welch, president of the School Board, on the donation of the land. "I don't believe 
that there is another university foundation in the state of Wisconsin that has partnered with their local 
school district in such a unique relationship for the benefit of the youth in the community," stated 

The school district plans on breaking ground late May, with completion of the middle school by 
fall 1997. The school will house grades 6-8, with approximately 850 students attending the 14,600 
square-foot facility. In addition to the building, there will be Softball, soccer and football fields, and 
basketball courts. The school will be located in the northwest corner of the 254-acre tract of land 
owned by the Foundation. 

The Stout University Foundation has begun marketing the land directly to the north and west of 
the school site for single and multiple family home sites. With the addition of the middle school, 
families can build in this area with direct access to both the middle school and Oaklawn Elementary 
school. Children will be able to attend K-8 without ever crossing a major highway or intersection. The 
Foundation is interested in eventually developing the remaining 214 acres with an access road to 
County Road J on the south boundary.

Reunion Reminiscence: A Commitment to Nutrition 

by Jacqueline Gamble, LDN, RD 

Out of a recent trip to my alma mater for one of those 
reflective, analytical, soul-searching treks into the past 
known as college reunion, there came about a story that 
keeps entering into all sorts of conversations. This story * 
hasbecomea highpoint of this weekend reunion because 
it reflects a good time with college friends, gives words 
to special memories and has a message that very much 
matters to me in my personal life as well as in my 
professional practice. 

Four of us gathered late at night in one of our hotel 
rooms, recalling pleasant and hilarious moments, reliving 
our college years and, I observed, falling into our old 
familiar patterns of how we think, approach situations, 
express ourselves and interact with each other. I say old 
not in the tired-out way that we think of "old" in the 90s, 
but the "old" in terms of being comfortable, trusting, 
knowing what to expect, knowing someone and how they 
wiU think orreact; and that special insight only that person 
has that makes him totally unique from everyone else. 

All of us agreed we had a special relationship and 
commented on how it was just as comfortable being 
togetherin 1 993 as in our college days. We also wondered 
that,after all these years, itfeltnodifferentto be together, 
even though our present lives are so varied. Why? We 
had not really done a good job of keeping up with each 
other; indeed, some of us dropped out of contact foryears 
and this was the first time for all of us to be together since 

"Is this something unusual?" we questioned. We all 
agreed that it was something very special. We also 
agreed that theapartment we shared, onethatournutrition 
and home economics teachers could have used as a 
model for a home management course, was the source of 

this special relationship. We all believed that the 
commitment that each of us had to the place we lived and 
the people who lived there enriched our relationships 
with each other and our lives farmore than we ever could 
have known at the time. 

Let me tell you what was unique about this student 
apartment. Because there were four of us, we took the 
necessary chores that every household has and divided 
them into four groups: laundry, cleaning bathroom and 
kitchen, cleaning bedrooms and cooking. Each person 
had one area of responsibility and we rotated these areas 
every week. The person who had "laundry" did 
everyone's laundry; the person who had "cooking" 
planned the menus, purchased the food and cooked the 
dinner each night. We sat down and ate together every 
night at 6:00 in our little kitchen that also served as a 
dining room and living room. 

When I told this to my fellow workers after returning 
from this reunion, they said, "That's weird! College 
students just don't do that!" 

It may be weird but it worked. It worked because we 
had a commitment to each other and to ourselves to make 
it work. We knew that as busy college students, we needed 
this structure to make our lives function better. We 
enjoyed, even looked forward to, the 45 or so minutes of 
sharing our lives before we dashed off to extracurricular 
activities and studying. It was during these times that we 
got to really know each other because, although we were 
probably unaware at the time, a commitment to eating 
together was a commitment to each other. 

Just about all of us think at some time that our lives 
are running us and not the other way around. One of the 
most practical and easy ways to bring order back into our 
lives is to make a commitment to ourselves, our families 

and those we care about to eat meals together. To turn off 
the television, to set the table, to spend a certain amount 
of time with each other conveys to our children and 
those with whom we live that this time takes priority 
. over all our other activities — that our families are the 
center of our lives. 

Being together need not mean an elaborate dinner 
that has taken a good part of the day to prepare. It means 
sitting down to soup and sandwich just as if it were a 
Thanksgiving dinner; to have the time with each other 
be a celebration; to have respect for oneself and for each 
them respect for each other, respect for the adults who 
give them structure and guidance, and a commitment to 
others outside of their own lives and activities. 

What a valuable tool a meal is for teaching this to 
families. Imagine mealtime as a treasured time together, 
rather than a chore to be gotten through as quickly as 
possible so we can get on to the next activity. 

As parents are getting children ready for school this 
fall, consider also setting a time for evaluating your 
family lifestyle. Consider using precious energy, time 
and creativity, not in preparing elaborate meals to be 
served on special occasions, but in providing your 
family with attractive and nourishing meals and making 
those times meaningful .Have your children be involved 
in setting the table and cleaning up. Let it be a time of 
teaching commitment and relationships to children or a 
renewal of commitments that have become third, fourth 
or fifth on the priority list 

There is a bonus: The focal point is no longer the 
"chore" of cooking; it becomes the giving of yourself to 
thoseyoulove. The rewards are farmorethan you could 
ever anticipate, both now and years later. 


"Consider using 
precious energy, 

time and creativity, 

not in preparing 

elaborate meals 

to be served 

on special occasions, 
but in providing 

your family 
with attractive 

and nourishing meals 
and making those 
times meaningful."

Rosmait's Summers 
are Out of This World 

Somewhere along the line, Russ Rosmait's 
career took a turn upward, though quite 
farther than he'd imagined. Rosmait BS 
'81 , MS '85 is an associate professor at Pittsburg 
State University (Kansas), but a summer 
fellowship with NASA in 1991 turned his mind 
toward outer space. He has spent his summers 
since in pursuit of space and aviation goals. 

In 1991, 1992 and 1995, he worked at 
NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in 
Huntsville, Ala., as part of an engineering team 
researching new manufacturing technologies in 
an effort to lower the cost of space access. He'll 
return to Huntsville once again this summer. 

"My job as a NASA Summer Fellow is 
basically to provide assistance to the current 
NASA engineering and research efforts," said 
Rosmait "As aFellow, you're given a very small 
part of a major project. You research your small 
part, and that is added as support for the major 
project research effort." 

"After my first summer, I really fell in love 
withN AS A and the United States spaceprogram," 
said Rosmait "If you saw the movie Apollo 13 
and loved it, you'll know what I mean. During 
summers at Marshall Space Flight Center, it was 
like a new Apollo journey every day. A journey 
of discovery that only ends when the summer 

Rosmait loved it so much that he spent the 
summersof 1993 and 1994 pursuing an Ed .D. in 
Aviation and Space Education at Oklahoma State 
University , where NASA contracts all education 
services and outreach programs. In 1995 he 
returned to NASA. He was awarded his Ed.D. 
this year. 

Rosmait has had a varied career since he first 
graduated with an industrial education degree 
from Stout in 1 98 1 . After a half year of subbing 
in the Milwaukee Public Schools, he returned to 
Stout to complete his M.S. in Vocational 

Following graduate work, Rosmait worked 
for the American Foundrymen's Society (AFS) 
as the assistant director of the CastMetals Institute, 
the research and training arm of AFS , conducting 
training programs for the cast metals industry. 
In 1 986, Rosmait took a position as a foundry 
process engineer with Marathon Electric in 
Wausau, Wis. In the spring of 1987, he applied 
for a faculty position at Pittsburg State University 
on an impulse. By fall he was back in the classroom 
teaching Principles of Metalcasting, Materials 

Russ Rosmait BS '81, MS '85 credits hisStout teachers 
for laying a solid foundation for his own success as an 

and Metallurgy, and Manufacturing Processes. 

In addition to his teaching duties, Rosmait is 
active in the Foundry Educational Foundation 
and serves as faculty adviser for Pittsburg's AFS 
student chapter.In 1994 he was voted Pittsburg's 
Outstanding Teaching Faculty by students and 

The summer workforNAS Ahashad practical 
application in Rosmait's classroom. "One of the 
biggest ways it helps me in the classroom is in 
adding a level of credibility that I didn't have 
before. My students even think Iknow something 
now," he joked. "It helps to be able to use 
examples of new technologies that are just being 
developed — that the general public won't see 
for a few years down the road." 

Rosmait credits his Stout teachers for laying 
a solid foundation for his own success as a 
teacher. "I try to teach like teachers I admired the 
most at Stout Chuck Krueger and Bob Melrose 
are two professors that come to my mind 
immediately," he said. "They influenced me the 
most. Their teaching style and rapport with 
students are how I model my classes. I probably 
could attribute my Outstanding Teaching Award 
to them."

The Women's Sports McKitrick 
Foundation and Sargento Foods Inc. teamed up 
to produce the public service announcement, 
released during March Nutrition Month. The 
message, directed especially to pre-teens, teens 
and young women, is a reminder that the 
combination of a high calcium diet and weight- 
bearing exercise helps reduce the risk of 
osteoporosis, the brittle bone disease that 
primarily affects elderly women. This early 
emphasis on diet and exercise helps build

maximum bone density and strength to help 
prevent osteoporosis in later years. 

"Research continues to show that Americans 
are not getting enough calcium in their diets," 
says McKitrick, Sargento Foods publicity 
manager. "Soft drink consumption continues to 
increase among children and teenagers, frequently 
replacing calcium-rich milk. As a mother of a 
teenage daughter, I have to find other ways to 
include dairy products in our meals." 

The McKitricks are not just "acting" healthy 
lifestyles.FortheMcKitricks, exercise isafamily 
affair. McKitrick, who received a degree in Home 
Economics Education, and her husband Richard 
'78 (Industrial Education) regularly enjoy 
bicycling, walking, playing tennis or in-line 
skating. Erin is a member of her high school's 
cross country and track teams. 

Bruce Barnes BS '66, MS '67 
has been teaching technology 
education at Hubert Olson Jr. 
High School in Bloomington 
since it opened in 1967. 
Recently, the Minnesota Tech- 
nology Education Association 
recognized his achievements, Bames 
presenting him with the 1995 Teacher of 

According to Barnes, the bestpart of teaching 
is the kids. 

'1 really enjoy the kids," said Barnes. "Most 
seventh-graders are really eager to learn." 

Bames, who graduated from Stout receiving 
a bachelor's degree in industrial education and 
a master's in industrial/technology education, 
has learned much about teaching. 

"When I first started, I knew all the answers, 
of course," said Bames. "The more I taught, the 
more help I had from two teachers — Paul Galazen 
and Ralph Scherer. They let me go out on a limb 
and occasionally break it off." 

The technology curriculum has changed much 

in the 28 years Bames has been teaching. 

"It' s the evolution of what was known as shop 
class. We used to talk about drafting," said Bames. 
"We now talk about electronic communication. 
We also talk about energy and power, trans- 
portation and production. We do still have projects 
with wood, metal and plastics." 

When asked if he thought about moving on to 
high school to teach technology, Barnes said "I 
had the opportunity to teach in high school but I 
enjoy the junior high too much to leave. I really 
enjoy seeing the light go on when they finally 
understand binary numbers." 

In 1 992, the Wisconsin Department of Public 
Instruction recognized Barnes for his leadership 
role as a cooperating teacher. 

"I have had over seventy student teachers," 
explained Bames. 

Barnes was the first teacher to be honored by 
for work in curriculum development and student 
teacher supervision in 1984. 

He resides with wife, Sandra, and children, 
Amanda and Noah, in Richfield, Minn. 

Funk receives IFEC's Betty Bastion Award 

Linda Funk '76, director, 
National Product Communi- 
cations Wisconsin Milk Market-

award at the International 
Foodservice Editorial Council's 
(IFEC) national conference in 
November 1995. She is only the Funk 
fifth recipient of the award out of the council's 
membership of nearly 200 communications 
professionals. Compared to the five previous 
winners, she is the most junior member to be 
honored with the Betty — a salute to the volume 
and value of her contributions to the group. 

The Betty Bastion Outstanding Service Award 
— created in 1991 to annually recognize one 

individual who has given unstintingly of his or 
her time, energy and talents to the betterment of 
IFEC and the food service communications field 
— is IFEC's "Oscar." The award honors Betty 
director of the organization. 

The IFEC is a 40-year-old national organ- 
ization of food service communications 
professionals. The group'smissionis to improve 
the overall quality of business-to-business 
communication within the foodservice industry 
and to encourage high professional and aesthetic 
standards for the profession. 

Funk also serves on the Stout University 
Foundation Board of Directors, and is a member 
of the Alpha Phi sorority. 

Yolitz sets environmental 
standard at West Publishing 

by Sue Denkinger West Reporter 

In keeping with the company's 
tradition of environmental 
concern, in late 1995, West 
Publishing became the first 
company to use Envirochem™. 
Envirochem is a film developer 
that helps fulfill two of West's 



goals: preserving the environ- Yolitz 

ment and maintaining West's high quality 


Using Envirochem, which is produced by 
Fuji Hunt Corporation, is a result of a joint effort 
between Fuji Hunt and West Publishing to 
develop a hydroquinone-free film developer. 
Hydroquinone is used in film processing in the 
graphic arts industry. 

Prepress assistant manager Craig Yolitz '85, 
an industrial technology graduate, began the 
search for a hydroquinone replacement in 1994. 
Fuji Hunt had been developing a hydroquinone 
replacement chemical, but it had not had the 
opportunity for large-scale testing until Yolitz 
approached the company in early 1995. Testing 
began in the prepress department shortly 
afterward. The results were "flawless," according 
to Yolitz. Consequently, Envirochem was used 
in full production in prepress beginning in 
December 1995. 

By February 1996, the use of Envirochem 
had eliminated over 90 percent of the remaining 
hydroquinone use in prepress. 

The use or storage of hydroquinone-based 
developers in quantities that exceed certain limits 
requires the submittal of annual reports to federal 
and state authorities. The use of Envirochem at 
West will eliminate the need to submit a report 
for any of the products used in the prepress 

"This developer epitomizes West's effort to 
run an environmentally friendly manufacturing 
operation," says vice president of production 
Craig Jilk. "As a result of Yolitz's efforts, we 
will be the first major printer in the US . to use a 
hydroquinone-free developer." 

According to Ron Rose, Fuji Hunt's director 
of sales and marketing, West' s interest made this 
product a reality. Although at present hydro- 
quinone is widely used in the United States, the 
shift toward alternative chemicals will make 
hydroquinone use an increasingly visible issue 
in commercial printing. 

West is the only current user of Envirochem, 
which is manufactured in the United States. 
However, the hydroquinone replacement will 
become available for widespread commercial 
use early this year.

Terry Anders (Jr, Cornell) picked up right where he left off 
last year, defending his 400-meter indoor track and field

season as the Blue Devils finished sixth at the national meet — 
their highest placing ever. 

Along the way , Anders captured the Wisconsin State University 
Conference (WSUC) indoor track athlete of the meet award, by 
taking firsts in conference record times in the 55- (6.44). 200-

Mike Hallingstad (Jr, Sparta).
